Ukraine: “It would be better policy for military doctrine to be validated democratically through parliamentarians”

Beyond the amount put forward, there is a geopolitical bias, which is to support the integration of Ukraine into the EU and NATO.analyzes Raquel Garrido who says “absolutely not favorable” to such an accession which would automatically make France a “cobelligerent” in the armed conflict with Russia.

When he was head of the EU agency responsible for border control, from 2015 to 2022, Fabrice Leggeri made “the bet that by letting people die in the Mediterranean, it will have a deterrent effect for those considering the crossing”she denounces.
